NAYI 2019 begins next week

The 48th annual Nebraska Agricultural Youth Institute (NAYI) begins Monday, July 8. The program is considered the longest running one of its kind in the country. Approximately 200 high school juniors and seniors from across the state are registered to participate in this year’s event. NAYI is a weeklong experience for the participants to learn about career opportunities within agriculture. The conference features speakers, workshops, agricultural education, professional development and networking with peers and industry leaders.
NAYI is coordinated and conducted by the 21 college-age students that comprise the Nebraska Agricultural Youth Council. Most of the week’s activities will take place on the University of Nebraska-Lincoln’s East Campus. The Nebraska Department of Agriculture serves as a sponsor for both youth groups and has done so since their inception. » Learn more
